and silent for a hundred years, now demanded a reckoning. in 1896, captain michael healy stood before a u.s. court-martial. the public was stunned by the charges against him. healy was recognized from san francisco to the arctic circle. in some parts of the country, he was better known than the president of the united states. mike healy represented american law and its justice along a 30,000-mile coastline of the alaskan frontier. praised in the house of representatives and tagged in the press as "ruler of the arctic," the slender, blue-eyed officer was not the man he appeared to be. born a slave on a georgia plantation, healy had bolted from the world of his birth, determined to steer his own destiny. in a country reeling from civil war and haunted by race, he chose to pass as white. this choice demanded vigilance, for he was navigating in perilous waters. captioning sponsored by the u.s. department of education narrator: when mike healy arrived in san francisco, the port had grown from a remote outpost into a thriving boomtown. gold put the town on the map. people came to get rich, eager

official u.s. combat troops arrived on the shores of vietnam. lines of solemn-faced young soldiers, black and white, could be seen marching by the hundreds, as they were greeted by smiling vietnamese women. in selma, alabama, martin luther king's supporters were also marching... to montgomery. on both fronts, the worst was yet to come. that summer, 34 people would die in the watts riots, and almost 400 american troops would perish in the jungles of southeast asia. on october 22 of that year, just two weeks shy of his 19th birthday, pfc milton olive was on a search and destroy patrol when the viet cong attacked with hand grenades. one landed in the midst of his platoon. the young gi threw himself over it and was killed, saving the lives of four soldiers he hardly knew. pvt. milton olive would become the first african-american to receive the medal of honor in vietnam. quote: "in dying, private milton olive taught those of us who remain how we ought to live."
